Brands Hatch Masters Historic Festival This Weekend

We will be in action again this weekend at the Brands Hatch Historic Festival

The Masters Historic Festival at Brands Hatch keeps on growing. Not only does it feature some of the best historic racing in Europe, it takes place on a wonderful circuit. For 2016, racing will take place on the Saturday and Sunday on the Grand Prix circuit.

The Brands Hatch GP circuit is largely unchanged from its heyday of the 1980s and makes it the perfect setting for historic racing cars. Formula One cars always make a stunning sight, as do the groundshaking sports cars in the FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship and there's more: new for this year is the first in a series of three-hour races catering for Pre-66 GT and Touring Cars, while the CanAm 50 Interserie Challenge Revival offers a chance for the leviathans of a golden age to go racing once more as the CanAm class starts its 50th anniversary celebrations. Add in the Masters 70s Celebration being promoted to racing on the GP circuit for this year and there is a wealth of action to attract you.
